Car in a box brain teaser

Answer…

The answer is Box two.

The aim is to work out which statement is correct by the process of elimination.

Therefore:

If the ‘car’ was in Box one, that would mean that the statements on Box one and Box three were both correct.

Similarly, if the car was in Box three, that would mean the statements on Box two and Box three were both correct.

However, if the car is in Box two, then the only statement which is true is the one written on Box three ‘The car is not in Box one’

    There is no car. It’s a government plot to distract the people while they scheme to elect Hillary as our next President. 😉

    It would seem that logically the car is in box 2.

  • Uhmmm…. I think I see a flaw. Box 3 states that the car is NOT in box 1. So, if the Car were in Box 1, the ONLY true statement is on Box 1. Therefore, there are 2 correct answers giving the guesser only a 50-50 chance on the care that is not there due to a government plot.

    Chris, think again. The car is not in box 1 — it’s in box 2. One box statement is true and the other two statements are false.

    Box 1 says the car is in box 1. That’s false.
    Box 2 says the car is not in box 2. That’s also false.
    Box 3 says the care is not in box 1. That’s true because it’s in box 2, not box 1.

    So there are 2 false and 1 true statement if the car is in box 2. You will not get 2 false and 1 true if the car is in any other box.
